Salem Domestic Abuse Attorney
Defending Against Domestic Abuse Charges in Salem, MA
Domestic abuse is a serious problem in Massachusetts and throughout the United States that occurs between families and others in close relationships when an individual uses force or intimidation to hold power over another. Domestic abuse is most commonly known in the form of physical abuse, although it can also manifest in verbal or emotional abuse. All types of domestic abuse can have long-lasting impacts, both on victims and those who have been wrongly accused or in cases in which the evidence does not include those factors that could help the accused. An expert Salem criminal defense attorney with KRP Law, LLP can provide the legal know-how, organization and representational skills necessary to combat these charges.
The penalties for domestic abuse can vary widely depending on the particular crime, and are often associated with other crimes such as assault, battery, sex crimes and even some types of theft crimes. Accusations of domestic violence are taken very seriously due to a heightened social awareness of the crime, and individuals who are accused of committing some form of domestic violence against someone in their family often face the court of public opinion long before setting foot in court. Although these can be very difficult conditions for a person to endure when accused, it does present unique opportunities for a creative defense in addition to the many other strategies that may be employed to effectively find success.
